Hope you’re all not getting sick of seeing my post pop back up again!!
I thought I’d put in a little update on me! 🙂
I’m doing…pretty good!!! Yay!!!!!
Last time I left I was taking out pretty much every single protein I was having, which was basically fish. I am now only eating eggs…and…yes, I am still alive!! 🙂
I was thinking I was going to die and not be able to make it through the day, but as the days went on the good Lord helped me through. So, I’m glad to say that now I’m doing fine and don’t even miss it. I did try some “practically” Organic chicken (no eye rolling), it was the closest thing I could find in this two horse town! No anti this, no anti that. Still I don’t think I reacted well, so it went into the ever growing pile of things I can’t have in the freezer! But it was worth the try, and boy did I EVER enjoy every single bite!!! 🙂
By the way, I’m no longer “starving”! That’s great too! I always seemed to never get full, now it’s totally different! Actually, I wish that I just didn’t have to eat, I’m pretty over the whole food thing. It just slows me down from what I’m doing to have to go and fix something. Now, now, don’t get all crazy, I’m still eating!! 🙂 Ha, with the 12T of Coconut Oil, man, I’m keeping the weight with “oil”?!! Pshhhh…I’d wish it was ice cream or something good like that!!!!! Haaaa!
The other thing I was dealing with was my eyesight and my hair falling out. I went to the doctor (who didn’t believe a word I said), he tested my blood for thyroid stuff, and all my sugar levels. The results came back normal, he said I was a perfectly healthy person! 😉 Haaaaa!!!
So, back to square one. I then figured out (with all of your help) that I was taking the wrong A vitamin (a synthetic one), and have since switched to the gel one with D in it, and also the right Biotin. I’m sure it couldn’t be hurting, only helping. My eyes aren’t getting worse, so that’s good.
The only other thing that was REALLY bothering me was my thinning hair!! I mean mega, thinning hair!! It’s so sad!! 🙁 I was praying, and praying that the Lord would show me, or SOMEBODY the answer! I don’t have many options!! Well, praise the Lord, of course I went to Able crying my said story and he found a link for me that said that the Blood Pressure medication I have been taking (for about a year now) is linked (in rare cases) to hair loss in women!!! WHAT?!?! Can you believe it?!! Neither could I! 🙂
Well, since that day about a week ago I stopped taking my BP medication. I’ve been monitoring it like crazy. Remember when I thought my toes were turning blue? 😉 I tried to go off it then, but in three days I could tell it was getting bad, so I had to go back on. Soooo….it’s been a week and a day and my BP is GREAT!!!
Yay!!! I’m so happy!!!! I would have NEVER thought to go off it, so I am so very thankful for the information Able found for me! Now of course I’m not suggesting to all you out there who take it to get off it or something crazy like that! This is just me! 😉
I think that with the diet, and the almost 20lbs I’ve lost, lot’s of veggies, and low animal fat (say’s Able ;)), is great for lowering your BP. I’ve yet to see a difference in my hair, too close to call. But……I’m just so happy to be off that medication! Not to have to go and get it every month! Well…Lord willing, we’ll see if it stays down?! 🙂
I also had this one trouble patch on my back of itchiness, from the beginning. I got some Organic Tea Tree Oil, and have been putting it on. I don’t know if that helped, but for the first time since February, IT’S CLEARED UP!!! DOUBLE YAY!!! Woo Hoo!!! I’m so happy!! Is God good or what?!!
Oh yeah, one more thing I just found out. Burdock is supposed to be really good for you? I was searching it and had no idea where to find it. Well…did you know that the Japanese call Burdock “Gobo”!!!!!! Yeah, can you believe it?!! GOBO ROOT, is Burdock!! I about had a heart-attack!! Gobo root is one of my all time favorite dishes that my grandmother used to make! Who would have known?! I guess it would have helped this half Asian, to know the “Asian” name for it!! So for all you out there who are Asian, you can have Gobo root! Isn’t that just so very exciting! Can’t wait to go to the Asian store and pick some up!!
Anyways, I think that’s about it? Love all you guys! You’re the best! Thank you for your continual encouragement and advice! I could never had made it this far without all of you! 🙂
Oh, can’t leave without a question!! 😉 So, Able, I’m down to my last bottle of probiotics. I’m taking four now! Two in the morning, and two at night. I don’t think it has to do with anything, but I didn’t sleep a wink last night!! 🙁 I’m still going to go ahead with the four, but in no time this bottle will be done. So, what do you think I should get next?
Much love to you all!!! 🙂
